DOUBLE MASTECTOMY & CHEMO
In 2008 I had to leave Canada to get health care, two mammograms gave a negative reading, I had to fight to get an ultrasound and biopsy. When I got them, I found I had breast cancer. As a nurse and as someone who helped set up cancer support groups across the province, I found there was nothing I could do to get timely treatment in Canada. The Mayo Clinic showed me as Canadians we have all the resources for outstanding care, but we lack the infrastructure to have the best care possible. I made a promise to three friends who had passed away from breast cancer that I would make a difference to Canadian Health care.
Research http://www.ellerbebecket.com/expertise/news/1/Healthcare.html linking better patient outcomes to health care design. I meet Terri Zborowsky PhD, who is originally a nurse from Winnipeg and now works for Ellerbe Becket/AECOM an international architectural firm that researches the impact of healthcare design on patient and staff outcomes.
